The community of European sustainable building & energy efficiency companies.
BUILDINTEREST structurally improves the financeability and attractiveness of investments in sustainable energy or energy efficiency in buildings by creating three national financing platforms (Italy, France, The Netherlands).
Investments in sustainable energy and energy efficiency are currently sub-optimal, forming an important bottleneck for Europe to reach its 20-20-20 targets. Particularly in the building sector, projects require high upfront investments, have high perceived risk, have to deal with complex planning and stakeholder issues, and suffer from split incentives.
Since the buildingsector is also one of the largest energy users in Europe and faces a major and sustained investment challenge, BUILDINTEREST focuses on addressing financial issues in investment in sustainable energy and energy efficiency measures in buildings.
